Curl Up And Dye
Have you ever noticed how when you get stuck
collage is the way out?
You know how when you upset the apple-cart you find your way to a new order?
I think this is what adding a mural to an interior does. It upsets the order of the architecture so a lot architects find this idea abhorrent. Not the great modern master, Le Corbusier, he himself a muralist/painter. Not only does it not compromise the architecture but it enhances it creating a beautiful fugue.
Such a pity most of his followers have not learned this.
Of course it's not just modernists. Post modernists, traditionalists, you name it, there is is a dearth of acceptance, a lack of celebration of the painted interior mural. You know how I feel. If you don't have one then you're just camping out.
Oh, but wait, a tent is no excuse. I've done paintings for tents. I'll share that in another post. You'll be surprised.
